There is a Lexis supported printer in the computer lab. Printing on the Lexis printer is currently free. Certain student organizations, such as Law Review, have a Lexis printer as well. The Lexis student representatives and not the Library take care of the Lexis printers.
If you’re already registered for Lexis, you don’t need to do anything else to get Summer Access. Access is unlimited for any purpose.
You can use Westlaw over the summer for non-commercial research. You can turn to these resources to gain understanding and build confidence in your research skills, but you cannot use them in situations where you are billing a client. Examples of permissible uses for your academic password include the following:
If your workplace has a Bloomberg Law account, you are expected to use that, but there are no restrictions on your student Bloomberg accounts over the summer.
Current students are permitted to use their CasemakerX accounts during the summer without restriction.
When you graduate, you'll automatically have seamless Lexis+ access for 6 months, excluding public records. Continue to use your law school username and password while you prepare for the bar exam and employment. Plus, access exclusive resources and a Rewards program for graduates.
